Hello, I'm currently looking at building my first gaming PC. So far this is what I have got.

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/ziggyzorr/saved/4Atq

I do plan on OCing it and I'm aware the I have to remove my side fan in the antec case to fit my hyper 212.

My main question is are all these components good for the price that they are? If not what are some cheaper/suitable parts you would recommend?

Thanks in advance

I'd suggest the MSI G45 or the GD-65 over the Giga ......the G45's won over 40 awards and the GD-65 is the best bang for the buck gaming card of the z87 generation.

While the Asus 780 is a beast, the 770 is a bit of a dog with a measly 1058 MHz core speed ....MSI and Gigabyte come outta the box at 1137.

The Antec case was a great case ... in its day...... but now a bit outdated..... Corsair 500R is cheaper ($159 down by you) and a significant step up.

HX650 is a much, much better PSU for less money

I know you said you wanted to overclock, but for the same exact price, this would be so much better.
